There is a foul smell from water on them lakes. The place should be avoided. The place is in need of better looking after.

The Centenary Lakes nature park has a great playground for children with waterplay, fairy garden, fossils to uncover, and ropes to climb set within a broader nature reserve which makes it great for picnics and longer walks as well. From Centenary Lakes you can also take the boardwalk through the rain forest to the botanical gardens. Sign posts within the park are not great and you can easily get confused.

The lakes are so peaceful and picturesque and they are an area that is great for bird spotting. There are a handful of Chinese garden style 'buildings' which add to the views. The water lilies and pads are very pretty too.

This is definitely a place to visit to view the wonderful tropical and rainforest plants. While at the gardens visit the Tanks and view the latest exhibition on. A very relaxing way to spend the day.
